GOYELLO Redmine Schedules
The Schedules plugin allows allocating users to projects and track this allocation in time. Allocation process can be done by simply scheduling to member a number of hours for a given day in a particular project, or can base on the time previously booked for tickets assigned to a user.
This plugin was tested on Redmine 0.9.2 on Windows Vista - Webrick, and Gentoo - Mongrel configuration.
